Aleksej Pokuševski News
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Aleksej Pokusevski finished his rookie season with a great outing on Sunday, leading the team to a 117-112 win over the Clippers with a career-high 29 points. He dropped six three-point bombs with nine attempts and shot 10-for-19 overall in the game with a 3-for-4 record at the foul line. Pokusevski missed a double-double by two rebounds, but he also posted seven turnovers with only two assists. The 19-year-old is a very exciting prospect, but he shot a horrible 34.1 percent for the season and it looks like his shooting coach has a lot of work to do.
Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Theo Maledon (foot) and small forward Aleksej Pokusevski (knee) have been deemed questionable to play in Sunday's game versus Sacramento. Maledon has held down starting PG duties for OKC since Shai Gilgeous-Alexander went down, but he has struggled mightily from the field during his rookie season. Much of the same can be said for Pokusevski, who is shooting a whopping 32.5 percent overall on the year, including 25.9 percent from behind the arc. For season-long leagues in which shooting percentage is not a consideration, Maledon and Pokusevski stand to have sizable appeal over the final week. Check back prior to tip-off to get the final word on the duo's respective statuses.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Aleksej Pokusevski (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Phoenix Suns. He sat out on Saturday due to a bruised knee and very well could miss this game too. The Thunder have been cautious with injuries, while they tank for draft position. It's hard to imagine anyone on this team being a reliable streaming option, assuming Pokusevski is out.
Oklahoma City Thunder point/shooting guard Luguentz Dort (hip) and small forward Aleksej Pokusevski (knee) have both been ruled out for Saturday's contest against Indiana. Dort is coming off a tremendous month of April in which he averaged 24.4 points and 5.3 rebounds per game, while shooting 46.3 percent from behind the arc over a seven-game stretch. Pokusevski has continued to see a sizable workload despite his concerning shooting metrics, which sit at 32.3 overall on the year, including 26.1 from deep. Theo Maledon and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk stand to see elevated workloads in the backcourt without Dort, while Gabriel Deck and Kenrich Williams could get larger minutes totals without Pokusevski in the mix.
